 Fran Ferrell
General Davie Chapter, NSDAR

Fran has been a committed leader and devoted humanitarian with the General Davie Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, for the past 11 years. Devoting 30-40 volunteer hours per month has afforded her the opportunity to serve as Honorary Regent, Community Classroom and DAR Project Patriot Chair. Her passion for helping others in need led to the conception and development of a new project called “Handbags for Hope.” What initially began as a desire to reach out to women and children living in the Good Samaritan Inn blossomed into a mission to provide toiletries and other needed hygiene items to the larger homeless student population in Durham. Donated handbags are filled with essential care items and delivered to public school social workers who distribute them to children who do not have a permanent residence. Fran ensures that each bag includes something fun for the recipient, such as a book, toy, or jewelry. Her vision is to expand the service to all Durham public schools by encouraging the General Davie members to adopt schools on their own.

Thank you, Fran, for your service to all and for innovating ways to help Durham's homeless children!
